26 paletts, 10 cubic meter dirt and a little time

Hi Y'all,

hope you'll had a nice Easter. We had a very nice one and followed by a few days off.

Today I want to show you our latest project, which was totally hubby's idea. At first I was not convinced but I must confess: Good idea, darling! 💖

It's not finished yet, but I can't wait to show you.
What do you do, if you have 26 palettes, 10 cbm dirt and a little time? No idea? You build a 15 meter raised bed.
On Tuesday Hubby digged out our box trees and put them in provided containers, so we could stow them in the shed over night because the weather forecast had predicted Frost and I didn't want them to freeze. The hydrangea unfortunately did not survive the digging. 😢 While Hubby was digging in the dirt, I had to paint all the 26 palettes with wood preservative. 😒
On Thursday we built the bed.
While we were building the bed, somebody tipped off a big heap (10 cbm) of dirt in the yard.
On Friday we filled the dirt into the new bed and planted back the box trees in place.
And because it is more convenient to pick them there, the strawberry plants have also gotten a new home.
As you can see, the edge isn't that nice. 😕So there will be boards soon. 😊
Step by step our garden becomes more beautiful.

PS: In one of my last posts I promised to show you a picture of Obelix together with his wild pigs. Here it is:
Thank you for dropping in and hope to see you soon
